Why are tyre checks so important?
Tyres are one of the most important parts of your car or van but can be the first to show signs of wear and tear, and it's important to keep them in good condition to stay safe on the road. Take advantage of a free tyre check at Bristol Street Motors, where our professional team will assess the generation condition of your tyres.
Worn, under-inflated tyres, or having the wrong type of tyres fitted to your vehicle can all have a negative impact on fuel consumption. Once tyres reach a certain level of wear, they can become noisier on the road and harm the environment by polluting the air with rubber particles.
What is a seasonal check?
A Bristol Street Motors seasonal check is a detailed examination carried out by our highly trained technicians to ensure your car is ready to take on the elements, no matter what season it is. Chilly winter temperatures and intense summer heat can take their toll on your vehicle's performance, and we can highlight any issues that need attention.
What is a warranty and what does it mean for your car?
All new vehicles and used vehicles within the warranty period come with a manufacturer's warranty as standard. To see what your warranty covers, always make sure to check the vehicle booklet or with the manufacturer for any exclusions as it can differ between each manufacturer.
The warranty will cover the cost of any confirmed warranty defects and excludes wear and tear items and replacements, as well as servicing maintenance. You also have the option to buy a Motor Assured Warranty which is an extended dealer guarantee.
If you buy an approved used car through a manufacturer programme, you will receive an approved used warranty. It's best practice to service your vehicle in line with the manufacturer's schedule to avoid invalidating your warranty and get the maximum protection.
Does a manufacturer's warranty cover servicing?
Your manufacturer's warranty covers the cost of any confirmed warranty defects but doesn't cover regular servicing. With Personal Service Plan, you can spread the cost of servicing for three years with interest-free, manageable monthly payments and make sure all car maintenance costs are taken care of. Find out more information about Personal Service Plan, here.
Why is it important to get a vehicle health check?
A vehicle health check (VHC) is carried out whenever you bring your car into one of our workshops for an MOT, service, or repair and is important to assess the general health of your car and spot any issues. This is a full inspection from bumper to bumper looking at:
- Vehicle interior and controls
- Key fluid levels
You'll receive a video of the vehicle health check to show you the overall condition of your car and highlight any issues found.
